Lovely paint jobs, seconded on that rust effect.

Quote from: Reed
3d printed FDM rats. I tested 3d-printing miniatures on my Ender 3 using a 0.3 nozzle and the Tomb of Printed Horrors profile for Cura

Ender 3 miniatures club represent! I originally bought my Ender 3 with the intention of just doing terrain but was pretty surprised at how well it can do miniatures, very well in fact with a smaller nozzle and some good PLA. The main issue compared to resin ofc is supports which can be terrible on FDM and are always gonna leave rough areas.

The lovely summer finally came to my side of the Mediterranean, which implies steaming hot temperatures and the sun basically trying to kill everything it touches. Painting under these conditions is quite agonizing, but I wanted to paint nonetheless, so I settled for something that wasn't too demanding. So, the most perfect time to paint some scenery.
Basecoats, oil washes, drybrush and detail picking and I have some ruins to dress up the battlefield a bit. The Azyrite Ruins set from GW is such great value, what a bummer they did discontinue it.

Other activity to do when the heat is strong: sculpting. I had a Warhammer stone troll who was missing its head, and I've been wanting to improve my sculpting skills (which amount to practically zero).



Pretty happy with this attempt, if I say so myself.

Great work in this thread, both in the painting and sculpting. I particularly like the Goblins and Skeletons.

Many thanks to all. This is my first attempt at sculpting a full bit. Before that, I had just filled gaps and perhaps sculpted a bit of fur.



A little update. Yesterday I was priming some figures and I had some leftover primer on the airbrush, which went to the sculpted head. Then, I attached it to the body, and here it is the troll finally assembled.

I was painting some Infinity figures and got completely tired of them (thanks again to the summer heat). Instead of that, I took a 3d-print I had of one Heroquest Mage, and resolved to paint it kind of fast.
Thanks to the oils, this one has taken me a couple of sessions, so in total, less than 2h 30'.





Printed on my Ender-3, so layer lines are visible up close, but practically unnoticeable when at the gaming table.


I think I read the wrong map...Ugh, backwards it is then

Not a bad figure, but your paint job is amazing.

Once I started to delve into my Pile of Printed Potentials there was no stop. Today I bring you a mysterious ranger, apt for Frostgrave, Rangers of Shadow Deep and a plethora of similar games.





Over a zenithal priming, I airbrushed several inks to paint the cloak. Then, carmin red oil + black for the shadows, and the rest was done in acrylics. Done in a couple of sessions as well.

Another day, another miniature. Today I bring a Hireling with torch, from Brite Minis on Thingiverse.
I quite like the looks of this dude, a lowly adventurer not seemingly pleased with the career he has taken.





This figure demanded an ambient picture like this one below (quickly done on GIMP, which I don't control too much. Please do not judge harshly  :'( )



As always, C&C welcome!
